Special:InvestigateLog looks something like:

Apart from some of the wording, it is virtually the same as the existing Special:CheckUserLog (including the HTML).

IP addresses and ranges don't have a separate "contrib" link, rather the IP address is a link to Special:Contributions/$ip.

There is no "block" link. I guess this will be done as part of the design/dev work for blocking.

It only includes rows from cuc_log where cuc_type = investigate (so does not include logs from the current check user).

The logs paginate similar to Special:CheckUserLog (see below). It uses the timestamp as index. So, if there are logs that are within a second of each other, they may be lost across pages.

Thanks @dom_walden. Sounds about right. The Czechuser pun wasn't missed. ๐Ÿ˜‚
